Obama's "Evolving" Morality: A Mandate From Jesus?

Once again President Obama has declared, not a "Gay Pride" day, but has declared the entire month of June to be LGBT Pride Month.


"This June, let's take some time to celebrate teachers and students who take a stand against bullying, openly gay and lesbian service members, ... families and friends who have seen their own attitudes evolve," he urged.

The basis of the celebration, he says, is the teaching of Jesus Christ. And Scripture.



The President of the United States is suggesting that Jesus has taught us to "evolve" away from biblical teaching on a most fundamental moral biblical Truth---that of human sexual behavior.

"We must treat others the way we want to be treated," the President said.

He cited the Golden Rule when he first revealed on May 9 that he now believes gay and lesbian couples should be able to get married.

In the President's theological world, if one does not affirm deviant sexually behavior condemned by Scripture, one is not following Jesus and His teachings.

Pointing to his and his wife Michelle's Christian faith, he told ABC News at the time, "When we think about our faith the thing at root that we think about is not only Christ sacrificing himself on our behalf but it's also the golden rule – treat others the way you'd want to be treated."

A new "truth". A new "value."

We are now told by our President that somehow Christ's death and resurrection condones homosexual behavior, affirms relativism in regard to Scriptural teaching on human sexual behavior and the way to live out the Golden Rule is to not only accept, but affirm and celebrate that which the Bible calls sin.

"I've often said that the true genius of America is that America can change. We can pass laws to right wrongs; we can soften hardened attitudes," he said in a video posted Friday on the White House website.

Celebrating "unsung heroes" in the LGBT movement, Obama stated, "Bit by bit, step by step they bent the arc of the moral universe towards justice. Now it's our turn."

We, not God, will determine what is right and what is wrong.

The president vowed to continue to "advance the rights of LGBT Americans" and called on Americans to "eliminate prejudice" and "celebrate the great diversity of the American people."

If you do not affirm homosexual behavior, you are not living out Christ's teaching.

How did we get to this place?

A recent study by "Changing The Face of Christianity," has found that only 1 in 3 Christians actually live out their faith according to biblical teaching. Founder R. Brad White calls them "Christians in name only," and is working to help churches better communicate the Truth of God's Word and help people actually live out those teachings. I recommend you read the link above.

The "Emerging Church" movement has focused so much on being "relevant" that many churches fail to distinguish between light and darkness---sin and righteousness---right and wrong, and in doing so have lost the opportunity for true redemption, true restoration and true transformation in people's lives---and in the culture.

We live in a culture that is more and more bent toward dismissing God as the Author of Truth and substituting ourselves---our own feelings and experience as the basis of Truth. We want to be "God" and relativism, rather than absolute Truth, provides the perfect environment.

Pastor John Piper described it this way:
“Relativism poses as humble by saying: “We are not smart enough to know what the truth is—or if there is any universal truth.” It sounds humble. But look carefully at what is happening. It’s like a servant saying: I am not smart enough to know which person here is my master—or if I even have a master. The result is that I don’t have a master and I can be my own master. That is in reality what happens to relativists: In claiming to be too lowly to know the truth, they exalt themselves as supreme arbiter of what they can think and do. This is not humility. This is the essence of pride.”

America's cultural, political and economic restoration will only come from once again becoming, "One Nation Under God'.

Your financial support allows us to continue to be a voice for biblical truth and a light in the darkness. Thank you for standing with us.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.

    Clarification ...

    Did he really say this in regards to gay pride month or is this be taken from his flip flop comments regarding gay marriage ?

  2. Mick, Obama has publicly used both the golden rule and the Sermon on the Mount as justification for his support of homosexuality and gay marriage. Gary is pointing out how his actions continue to be consistent with his heresy. I bet you knew that.

    1. Oh yes , but I would be surprised if he attemted to use it again . In his using the Atonement of Christ on the Cross and scriptures to support gay marriage it sets up a precedent , whats next Leviticus scriptures the next time we have a concervative presisdent supporting his issues .

      I just figured Obama realized how wrong he was for attemting to make this a theocracy for his designated few minutes he would have learned from it .

      I am tired of this President . Just read an interesting poll stating this country has not been more divided in decades. The great uniter has a war against everything , Women , rich V poor , union worker V tax payer, religion V religion, etc etc . Its how he debates , then he speaks to civility and uniting . Blame republicans , he never compromises from his idealogical leanings , he is just been a disaster when we needed a leader.

  3. Thank you for continuing to speak the truth with a clear voice. There is too much ambivelance in the church. No wonder our youth are confused as to what is right and wrong.

  4. Well said John Piper. It is arrogance and rebellion at the heart of the secular progressive movement and the gay-rights movement.

  5. The only thing that bothers me about Faith & Freedom is referring to the Illegal WhiteHouse Occupant as "President".

  6. This should really come as no surprise to anyone. The prez is a product of our school system which teaches the Darwinian religion of man as god. It's the same lie Satan told Eve, "you can become as gods, knowing good from evil". This false doctrine will continue to be accepted because darkness hates the light of Scripture. The heart of man is disceitfully wicked above all things. Its only going to get worse, so prepare yourselves. Remember, the battle is the Lords', put on your breastplates and helmets, pick up your shields and the sword( which is the Word of God). Pick up your crosses and follow Jesus.

    OBAMA PROMOTES PUBLIC SEX
    (and thinks children have a "right" to see it!)

    Google “Zombietime” and click on “Up Your Alley Fair.” After recovering from the uncensored photos (!), Yahoo or Google “God to Same-Sexers: Hurry Up” on the “ucmpage” (even Jesus told Judas to hurry up – John 13:27). Also Yahoo “Dangerous Radicals of the Religious Right.” View these before the predicted California earthquake happens a la Rev.16:19 (“the cities of the nations fell”) – and before meteorological "lows" like hurricanes and tornadoes which predictably reflect society's "lows." Gays have invented strange architecture - closets no longer opening on to bedrooms but on to public Main Streets where children can watch police-protected sex between naked men in "Madam" Nancy Pelosi's brothel district! I wonder how soon San Fransicko's underground saint - San Andreas - will get a big jolt out of what goes on above him and will suddenly change the political center-left into the EPICENTER-LEFT!
    Since Luke 17's predicted "days of Lot" (see Genesis 19) immediately precede the Second Coming, gays and gay-loving SF politicians are hurrying up, and thus helping to fulfill, Christ's return as Judge and making the Bible even more believable! Not one to mince words, Jesus said in Mark 9:42 that anyone hurting a child in any way deserves to be hanged and have his body thrown into the ocean - and that includes any President whose favorite drink seems to be infanti-cider! It's far from coincidental that the more America elevates gays and other violence, the more the cost of gas, food etc. goes up! If America is smart, it will pick up the big dust-covered book everyone owns and almost never reads - no, not the Sears catalog - and find out that the One who made the universe has some rights too!
    Also Google "Obama a Black-Slavery Avenger?," "Michelle Obama's Allah-day," and "Islam Will Purify Jews and Christians."
    PS – New pro-life slogans: “Unborn babies should have the right to keep and bear arms – and legs and ears and eyes etc.!” & "Unborn babies should have the same right to be born alive that abortionists had!"

    (Obama and his porn-protecting California friends - including Brown and Pelosi - did NOT approve of this message.)
